election process. they have done everything in their power to be first. everybody wants to be fought over in a presidential election, everybody wants to monopolize the candidates and the nation's attention. so we're iowa, the first in the caucus, you have to spend tons of time here, we're new hampshire, the first primary, you have to spend tons of time here, mitt romney, you have to move here, you, too, john huntsman, we want all your attention. every state wants to do everything they can for the presidential candidates' attention, they all want a battle ground, they all want to be fought over. or at least they used to want to be fought over. something weird happened since the last election. and it is really starting to happen. i think you should know about it. in wisconsin and michigan and ohio and pennsylvania and virginia and florida, there is now noise that these states, which were at pretty hard fought in the presidential election, these were all battleground states, they're all fighting to make themselves less important in the next election, all of them voted democratic for presiden
can still win elections without them. >> well, david, five states where gop lawmakers have introduced billed making it illegal to enforce president obama's new executive action and gun proposals, another example of states' rights and nullifications. the states of tennessee, wyoming, south carolina and north dakota. so here we are with a states' rights movement live and well in 2013. this is unreal. >> well, i don't think these guys truly understand the constitution. under the constitution, which they claimed to cherish, you know, it's not yahoo sheriffs who get to decide whether something is constitutional or not. it's something called the supreme court. so right away, they're undermining our entire system by issuing their edicts or their fiats against these actions. but i'm still waiting. i'm waiting for any of these guys to come out and say okay, 23 executive actions? which ones don't you like? the ones that make it easier for universal background checks to be -- to happen as they should be happening, just on the basis of regulations and guidances? what law -- which executive action
elections, but this committee is rigged. >> and she ran the nominating committee in 2012. there is a new committee in effect now. but the way the elections work, it is sort of like a communist politburo, nobody knows who is on there. >> you just finding out who is on there is difficult. >> absolutely, and supporters of the nra, but some claim it is a sham election. they hand-pick the candidates for the nra elections that get on the ballot. and 29 out of 31 candidates on the ballot are in fact picked by the nominating committee. every year, one or two get on by a petition of 250 members or more. the result is, the election is a done deal before the ballots go out. and pro-nra bloggers entered a complaint, that i don't know if i will fill it out, it is a waste of time, there is no discussion or debate in the process. it is simply about rubber stamping about what the nominating committee has already done. and ultimately it is a way the board and the paid executive officers that are chosen by the board to keep themselves and people loyal to them in power. >> and this is the way this guy -- d
to enact the redmap scheme for the election in their state in time for 2016. the state's republican governor and majority leader in the senate have said that they support that idea or pennsylvania. the beltway is fix sated on election process. in the meantime if you want to look into it yourself we have built a toolkit on our website. thank you for being with us tonight. >> this is common sense. this conversation is long overdue. there is no reason we can't do this. all out panic from the right wing. president has this king complex. nothing he is propose iing woul have prevented connecticut. >> what the bheep ble[ bleep ] doing? >> the nra has the fight of the century. >> those are crazy people. >> it wasn't about the president's daughters. >> of course it was he mentioned the president's kids. that is so crazy. they are never going to get middle america and they are going to lose this debate. >> today the obama administration took it's campaign outside the white house. >> i know as well as anyone having written the first assault weapons ban that the industry will do whatever they c
. then comes the election of barack obama and mitch mcconnell's announcement that his number one agenda item is to defeat president obama. we have, i think, a productive 2009 and 2010 and then in 2010, a group gets elected in the house, in particular, we don't believe in governance. not totally pessimistic. the way to go we've seen in the last three major issues in the house, a split within the republican party where main stream conservatives of the bob dole variety have aligned with the majority of democrats. they've been opposed by a majority of republicans in the house, but not of the whole house and speaker boehner, to his credit, has been allowing a coalition to come together and i hope what happens is that the main stream conservativism of the republican party continue to fight back. >> he hopes the republican party remains divided so democrats can get something done. >> no, i hope the conservatives in the republican party assert themselves the way they have in the last three votes and work with us and marginalize their eextreme wing. >> i have to tell you. >> i think that's the same t
first address, the president paid tribute to the historic nature of his election. >> this is the meaning of our liberty and our creed why men and women and children of every race and every faith can join in celebration across this magnificent mall and why a man whose father less than 60 years ago might not have been served at a local restaurant can now stand before you to take a most sacred oath. >> call me a romantic but, i'm looking for a major even historical address this coming monday. and we'll be right back. >>> welcome back to "hardball." just how out of touch is the nra? the gun rights group has given no ground since the newtown school shooting and is now running a new ad that goes after the president's daughters. has the group finally given up the veneer of having from both parties? americans are generally turning on them and many of their policies are deeply unpopular. i'm talking about the nra. and they're facing right now, we'll see. will the republican party go along the same road the nra is taking? joining me now is my friend and colleague joe scarborough who often speaks c
, over the top paranoia started with the election of a black president. >> how so? connect. >> let's remember that in 2008 obama had campaigned for his first election being afraid to mention the words gun and law in the same paragraph. he never said a single thing about gun control, gun safety laws. yet when he was elected, gun stores sold out of guns. gun stores sold out of ammunition because the gun lobby had persuaded them that this guy is coming for your guns. they're already paranoid, extremist -- >> let's get to that overlay. >> they don't like progressive, democratic administrations. a black president makes them crazy. >> this is what's changed congresswoman, in my focus. you have been totally focused for a generation since the tragedy in your family. this idea that we don't have a gun to protect ourselves, we don't have to go skeet shooting or shoot rabbits or deer in deer season, it's not the usual sort of healthy sounding at least reasons to have a gun. it's now i need my gun to protect me against the helicopters, the federal government, or the u.n. is coming to get me. a
to be on saturday night live. look, look, it's a troll. we see trolling sometimes in elected officials, too. when a politician says something deliberately provocative in front of an audience because they're banking on firing up a smaller group of people who enjoy the way that speaker can make that other audience feel. congressman steve king is kind of a permanent troll. >> we could also electrify this wire with the kind of current that wouldn't kill someone but would simply by a discouragement from them. we do that with livestock all of the time. >> comparing imgrants to livestock and using a visual aid to do so on the house floor. here's another. >> a poet once said life can be a challenge, life can seem impossible, but it's never easy when there's so much on the line. >> he was trolling the entire democratic process at that point. here's oolt. trolling. congressman allen west, former congressman allen west begging america please be out raged by me, please condemn me. i live to cause pointless out rage. i am a troll. the thing about trolling is that the troll, by definition, is not serious. they
point and i think generally speaking i think keep kids of ehe lektlek elected officials out of politics, do you agree. >> i agree. >> sean: but i mentioned major hasan and it didn't fit in the narrative. >> anytime you use children in any context, it's a dicey proposition and you have to be careful and the president and his children are in a different category. >> sean: i thought it was creepy and exploited. >> and you use the children in campaign ads and certainly in 2008 with joint interviews with michelle and so on. he also used at least one child when he signed obamacare, the health care bill into law so he has been known to use children as props. the reason today was different in this particular case, sean, because you're dealing with an issue that involves violence and especially violence against children, so to have those children there and to sort of drape himself in it, is sort of cynical. how can you argue against children? you can't. >> sean: one of the things that bothers me the most in this leslie, we rightly protect our presidents, our mayors, our cabinet officials, hollyw
to run for elected office. >> none? that's a flat no. >> that's it. i have no plans. absolutely. >> okay. well, thank you very much. thanks for joining us today. we'll follow, of course, your crusade, your campaign with mayor bloomberg on the issue of guns. >> okay. thank you, andrea. thank you for having me. >> at least 40 hostages, including americans, are believed to have been taken hostage on a raid on an algerian gas plant. there are wlikting reports about the state of the hostage crisis. joining me now nbc news chief pentagon correspondent jim miklacevski. >> what is the pentagon telling you and leon panetta was travel and has been talking to reporters along the way, but do we know more about exactly what happened in this shoot-out? >> u.s. officials all along have said the details are murky, and here's what we know and what we don't know. about seven hours almost 24 hours after the hostages were taken by those armed militants, al qaeda-linked militants at that bp malgas plant there in algeria, the algerian military launched what was supposed to be a hostage rescue operation. as we
policies. it's amazing to me. aren't we electing people to protect american people? >> yeah. if they can't pass this, i mean, what can they do? if they can't do this thing that has never ever been controversial. and the other thing that's really disturbing is everything now. the fiscal cliff, the debt ceiling, the continuing budget resolution. everything is used as a bargaining chip to get their way in this very ideological way. you said you don't doubt the congressman's sincerity on deficit reduction. i do. when you look at the fact that he didn't vote for the fiscal cliff deal. if you're talking about deficit reduction from raising revenues, he's not on board at all. he only wants to see it come from cuts. so it's a specific piece of ideology that he is coming from. i think it's abhorrent to use something like disaster relief as a chip to get your way. >> richard, they're also threatening government shutdown. are there any boundaries to some -- and these are not all republicans, but these extreme republicans when it comes to their ideology no matter who it hurts? >> they blinked last t
to come out who are still elected representatives of the party. one, to say hey, let's have a real conversation here and not just hide behind the nra and its rhetoric of fear. >> michael, do you think there are any republicans that will vote for any of the proposals that were put on the table today. >> i do. and i'll tell you why. it's the numb befrs that you show in the first segment today, those poll numbers. that's where the rubber meets the road here. it's a turning point and one that the party better get in front of. >> at this point in time, the only voice the gop is really hearing are the crazy ones. so you might be right, michael, susan, any other republicans who are out there. but as the debate is being framed, we don't see any real republicans in leadership positions taking a moderate -- >> michael, i hope you're correct. >> the obama campaign apparatus is going to take on the nra. we'll ask if the president will hit the road to make his case directly to the american people. then find out how survivors are reacting to the president's plan. sandyhook's top educator gives a
should, you are an elected official as well as sheriff of the county. >> correct, being sheriff is a unique position, only elected law enforcement official in the country. lou: and the sheriffs play a vital role in law enforcement, most people know and are appreciative of. you have expressed concerned about the executive orders of the president, you have concerns about number 6, says public a letter from atf to federally licensed gun dealers providing guidance on how to run background checks on private sellers, they were pretty well prepared if are that letter, weren't they? >> i believe so, that will require a lot more explanation on their part. if that indicates that they are pursuing, prohibiting private sale and transfer, among private parties it will be interesting how they approach that. lou: this is a letter from the justice department, saying, to all who hold licenses, federal firearm licenses, that they are going to be engaged in providing background checks, going to the national background check system of the ncis to have a background check for gun shows and private sa
not send elected officials to washington to do this kind of harm. is this why you sent your elected official to go to washington to allow something like this to happen? and i'm asking republicans tonight. is this really what you want the country to do? look. the bottom line is this. we're at a crossroads in america. the right wing wants the big three so bad, this is the conversation they're willing to have. and this may be the direction they're willing to go to make sure that they can get the cuts they want, because they want that government cut right down into the bathtub. i'm joined tonight by msnbc contributor and "washington post" columnist e.j. dionne, and ruth conniff, political editor of the progressive magazine. great to have both of you with us tonight. e.j., you first whom. would get hit the hardest? i mean, if we were not to pay our bills, who gets hit the hardest and the soonest, actually? sooner than anybody else? >> i'm glad what you did what you just did, because i think one of the problems with this debt ceiling fight is that it's such a ridiculous idea on its face t
at their back. the tea party election of 2010 had given republicans very big numbers on the hill. and he's decided that he backed up, and he backed up and he backed up, and he's not going to back up anymore. he took his argument to the american people in the election. he won the election. they held the house, that is true. but he's decided that he's been vindicated by public opinion broadly, and he's going to try to hold that ground. the question is going to be, larry, at the end of the year on the tax issue, he had the hammer behind him of the expiration of all the bush tax cuts. he does not have that hammer right now. what he has is the prospect of a catastrophic standoff between republicans and democrats on the hill and against the white house and can he get his way, impose his way the way he did to some degree in the fiscal cliff negotiations? we're going to find out pretty soon. >> yes, we will. many thanks, john harwood, appreciate it. >>> joining us now exclusively with the gop response, the new chair of the republican study committee, steve scalise from louisiana. so we're going

oaths since fdr, he was elected four times. the challenge for president obama this time is to recapture the energy and enthusiasm of four years ago when a record 1.8 million people descended on washington to witness the history-making swearing-in of the nation's first african american president. nobody expects a crowd that big again. this time, the president will have his hand on two bibles. abraham lincoln's and martin luther king's. in a video released by the white house, the president explained why. >> letting them know there's a connection between me being here and the sacrifices of those in the past, which i think is entirely fitting. >> the man who ran obama's re-election campaign says the president will use his big speech tomorrow, in part, to reach out to some of those who voted against him. >> you'll see a president who wants to work across party lines to get things done. i think that's what the country wants. >> reporter: after today's oath was complete, the president's 11-year-old daughter was happy to see dad got the words right. >> i did it. >> you didn't mess up. >> we got
in the last election. but all of a sudden -- all this other stuff -- i just don't know. >> look, the government is a bad investor. they are bad in adventure capitalism. what we have seen is the center of gravity that has moved more to the left of the last five and 10 years, much more than in 2000 when bill clinton was president. neil: caroline, to your point -- the democrats had a good showing minus the house and we will see more of that? >> of course we are. it's a good investment whether it's government or private. >> solar will take those and double those every two years. i'm saving up for that chevy boldly we love so much hybrid cars. >> 2% of our energy use. it's been going up for the past decade. neil: if you can say that, caroline, you can say anything. from the guys that brought you three minus, a demand for a raise for a job well done. maybe their heads are stuck [ male announcer ] where do you turn for legal matters? at legalzoom, we've created a better place to handle your legal needs. maybe you have questions about incorporating a business you'd like to start. or que
leadership has to say about this issue. they want to shrink government. they were elected to shrink government. and whether it's defaulted, whether it's shutting down the government, whether it's allowing sequestration to kick in, they're going to make it happen in the next couple of months. and nobody knows how that will play out. >> we may just find out what happens when we reach the debt limit. jim, in spite of what the white house's grand plans for gun reform may be, there still may be not a lot of backing in congress. if you look at even republicans in the midwest and republicans in the north, how does this play out right now in congress? >> well, right. there's going to be a lot of focus on gun control. there has been since the shooting, and there will be when the president unveils his package today. i would caution people to look at the vote count inside the house republican conference. there is almost no support for doing anything on new gun control, nothing on magazine size, nothing on assault weapon ban, nothing beyond maybe tightening background checks. even moderate repu
or south dakota or louisiana who are up for re-election. they understand the political reality of this. >> so they want to see what sticks, more or less? >> that's right. and so if you put out a big list, something comes off the table, you can still succeed to a great degree. >> public opinion obviously is a big question here. >> oh, yeah. >> and it sort of shifted over the past few weeks. however, that's going to be what drives how much the president can do, perhaps? >> it sure does. and i was on the phone with a democratic pollster who was in touch with members of congress all the time. what he said to me is what they are seeing, sure, the national polls show that more people favor gun control than don't. that may always have been the case, even before newtown. but they are seeing a shift in intensity. the intensity has always been on the side of the national rifle association, the voters who come out and vote on a single issue particular flee a midterm election, particularly what we're coming tochlt he says what they are now seeing and they are hoping for is an intensity, maybe equi
changes be made? >> i actually don't think so. when you look at the democrats up for re-election in the senate, many are from southern states, pro-gun states. there's very little common ground when you're dealing with the right in the constitution. >> this is the problem here when you put politics in it, you have too many people worried about getting re-elected as opposed to worrying about the 10,000-plus folks killed every year when it comes to gun violence. they should put lives ahead of their jobs. >> let me share another quote. "time" magazine/orc poll shows that 56% support a ban on semiautomatic weapons. that is down from 62% in december. if a poll was taken right now, what do you think -- what do you think that would be? >> oh, you know, i would be very interested to see it because of how you shape it. it's fascinating. we did a thing from our radio show, talking to people and showing pictures. they said, yeah, ban that gun. it was a shotgun, it just had a pistol grip. people didn't understand. the problem with the assault weapons ban has always been it's a spooky looking
is that when you see that 71% of almost 12 million voters the last elections, voted for one political party, and that group that voted 71% for one political party, is the fastest growing group in the country. already 50.5 million strong. 18 years of age equals voting age. if they think they can ignore the concerns of a large portion of this country or simply use words like am midwesty, i can't even deal with talking about it, then they'll got something coming. they may become the minority party for generations to come, and i'm not sure that any politician that sits down worrying about their future really thinks they want to be a part of a party that has no shot at national office because of something they could today choose not to do. >> you know, bringing to us our panel many new york here. steve, one of the things -- frank luntz had an op ed in the washington post with lots of tips, if you will, for the republican party. one of the things he says is you can't tell people to self-deport. they are not asking for open borders or blanket amnesty. they just don't want to be regard as criminals
strongly in the 2010 midterm elections, he came back and gave a state of the union, a couple months later and said, just as susan did, we need to save more because we need more money for investments of the this is the way the president governor earns. he is a tax-and-spend liberal of the old school and i think it's, entirely clear that he could ask for more taxes. melissa: i feel like i'm going insane here because i feel like there was some sort of conversation about, this is going to be balanced approach. we'll raise taxes. if republicans will give on that we'll go ahead and cut spending. i feel like we have raised taxes and now we'll raise even more taxes and we're still spending like drunken sailors. susan, am i wrong. >> we're not spending like drunken sailers. melissa: we're not? 16 trillion dollar debt. >> 11 trillion he inherited. melissa: that is fine. everyone is at fault. everyone contributed to to this we are in dire straits. we are broke. everyone is at fault. no one is fixing it. >> well, and he is trying to fix it. that is why $4 trillion total reduction if they get to that
to get its act together and get the economy moving. >> the american people also elected another house of representatives, a republican house of representatives, and that is our most direct form of representation in the federal government, the house of representatives, and they're the ones that control the purse strings. we have to do something. this isn't -- the thing is this is not about party politics. this is about the solvency of this country, it is about this country being the greatest nation on earth. it's our greatest threat to our national security. >> some people would say it is about party politics and some people, frankly, blame the tea party for this terrible gridlock in the house of representatives. there's a tea party group in south florida that's going to change its name to not include the tea party because the public reacts so negatively to that title now. >> i think that's because we have been, i mean just given a bad rap. all we're about is fiscal responsibility. we're not about social issues. all we want is washington to live within their means, just like families a
not fear the national rifle association. the nra didn't affect any races in the last election cycle and it probably won't do it the next time around. now, if senate democrats cannot get over the hump of losing their a rating from the national rifle association, folks, this gun legislation, it isn't going to go anywhere. senator al flank efranken of mi is another democratic lawmaker who was somewhat puzzling in the last 24 hours who decided to clarify his position. he says, "i co-sponsored legislation to ban large clips like those used in so many mass shootings," he said in a statement. "i also support the principle that we should reinstate a ban on assault weapons. and i will carefully review any proposal to do that." in principle. can we get some straight talk? because that in principle kind of thing leaves a little wiggle room that maybe you might not do it, al. there are other senate democrats ready to vote right now. there are multiple democrats sponsoring their own legislation. a background check bill from senator chuck schumer. an assault weapons ban from senator dianne feinst

has released the new official portrait showing the newly re-elected president sporting a broad smile in the oval office, which we note is the same room where all the problems of the nation wind up. not that much smiling goes on in the course of an average day in that room in the life of an american president. >>> some former presidents are in the news. starting with 43 and 41. both bushes say they will be unable to attend the inauguration. george w. bush 43 says he can't attend due to his father's health and his recent long hospitalization. and president clinton has gone public about something people have noticed about him for some time. a tremor in his hands. it was particularly evident during our last interview with him this past summer. he says in an interview he grew quite concerned about it, but was so greatly relieved when he learned it's age-related and not parkinson's that he doesn't worry about it all that much anymore. >>> when we come back, one woman's home-grown idea.

interesting thing to compare him to would be right after the 2010 elections when they brought in daly which signaled that they wanted to change their approach inside the white house, wanted to reach out to business, wanted to try to reach out to republicans, have better relationships with the house and senate. what this pick signals is that it's going to be a more combative white house, continue to be a pretty insular white house. i think some of the bellyaching speci internally, it's another white guy in leadership role inside the white house. it signals to me an approach where they're ready for combat. we see that in the legislation they're talking about for the next year that he wants to be pushing. and that also just the reality that the next two years are not going to be a pleasant two years for relationships between the white house and congress. nobody's expecting a grand bargain anymore. i think the chance -- they had a good chance to have one a couple months ago. they have almost no chance to get one now. the reality is it's going to be grind it out for the next couple years. he has
